Community Safety Expo

​Residents will be able to see how emergency services respond to a motor vehicle crash, during a live demonstration at the 20th annual Canterbury-Bankstown Community Safety Expo, this Saturday (12 October).

NSW Ambulance special operations paramedic, Gerry Pyke, said it’s one of a number of live demonstrations at Bankstown Central shopping centre.

“We do these demonstrations to get people to understand just how much energy and resources go into getting people out of a vehicle after a crash,” he said.

“It can also be an eye-opening experience and makes people seriously look at how they manage their vehicles on the road.

“You never know what level of experience the driver next to you has, so it’s your responsibility to apply 100 per cent of your concentration to your own vehicle.

“When distractions like music, children, drugs or alcohol are put into the mix, then it’s like playing Russian roulette with your life.”

Mayor Khal Asfour said the Safety Expo is a chance for residents to see exactly what emergency services are faced with.

“The information and advice at the Safety Expo could potentially save lives and prevent needless tragedies in our community,” he said.

“There will also be prizes and giveaways, and children will have the opportunity to sit in an emergency vehicle.”

There will be other demonstrations and activities to check out on the day, including: 

  • How to extinguish a kitchen fire;
  • How to perform CPR;
  • Information stalls involving Police, Fire and Rescue NSW, NSW Ambulance, Surf Lifesaving, St John Ambulance, and SES;
  • Face painting; and
  • Competitions and giveaways.

The Safety Expo will be held at Bankstown Central shopping centre (Centre Court, opposite Kmart). For more information, visit cb.city/whatson
